Beatty’s explanation, which we are never called upon to doubt, is that an outraged people seeking complete equality called for more and more censorship as texts became more widely available to interest groups that might be offended by them: “It didn’t come from the Government down. There was no dictum, no declaration, no censorship, to start with, no! Technology, mass exploitation, and minority pressure carried the trick” (51). ” Bradbury closes the novel, however, with an optimistic view: the text will prevail, and man will be the better for it.
The romance both in its prose and poetry forms is a much older form than the novel. The novel does have older roots, but its origins are not much older that the seventeenth century. There were three reasons for the development of the novel at that time: the invention of movable type, the rise of the middle class, and the Protestant Reformation. The first brought down the price of printed works, the second created a class with an interest in the experiences of ordinary people and the money to buy books that described such experiences; and the third, by insisting that people should interpret the Bible for themselves, fostered the literacy necessary to read literature.
It’s all odorphonics and sonics” 26 Steven E. Kagle (Illustrated Man 17). Yet, the children are able to commit their murder by locking their parents in the nursery and letting the images of lions on the wall kill and eat them. Bradbury tells us that the ten-year-old boy is bright and may have tinkered with the machinery, but the story does not give us any rational way that even a bright child can make a lion on a television screen into a physical manifestation. Nevertheless, we as readers do not question the scientific truth of the story any more than we question how Peter Pan can make people fly by sprinkling them with fairy dust.
